Hello

Today the news guy said, some serial robbers head into the suburbs & I though he said cereal robbers head into the suburbs, and I laughed for way longer than I should have. Oskar didn’t seem to find it amusing.

I'm still here, and doing OK.  We got our first snow today and even though we are lucky to have our first snow that sticks this late in the year, I hate it with a passion.

It wasn't one of those nice fluffy snows, it was freezing rain first so that our vehicles (no garage) ended up frozen shut.  We broke the one pitiful ice scraper we could find.  Nothing beats being out in freezing sleet trying to chip into your car with half an ice scraper & a spatula. 
Once I got going, I went to Meijer to get two ice scrapers.  I got sturdy, fancy ones that cost almost $20 each.  When I came home my husband & I couldn't figure out how to work them.

Winter wonderland?  Don't be fooled, snow mostly sucks ;)

I'm actually doing better than OK, I'm doing better than I have in a  while.  I make sure I get dressed in jeans or cargos everyday, I used to always wear pajama, sweat pants type stuff all the time when I was more depressed.  But, since JD has my van all day while he is working & I'm dedicating today to blogging and cleaning, here's a little peek at the outfit I've been wearing since I got back from running my errands.

Cozy & Comfortable
I have a little more on my plate with my 3 blogs than I can handle right now, but I'm not focusing too much on blogging, so I can focus on acutally getting out of the house and living life.  I'll probably be around more often after my trip to the ACK Eukanuba dog show and the holidays are over.

It's good to see you! LOVE the socks (I think I've seen those before - ha!).

I'm glad you're doing well - I think focusing on you is the best thing right now. And figuring out how to use the ice scrapers - that's also pretty important where you live!

Glad you are doing better and getting out and about more. We haven't had any snow here in my corner of Kentucky but I don't think it will be long until we do. Take care Pam and don't worry about us bloggers. We will still be here whenever you feel like stopping by. (hugs)!

LOL about you and hubs not being able to work out how the new ice scrapers work. 20 Dollars each?!?! Are they made of gold and running on electricity? They must be really fancy ;-)

And I'm glad you're doing even better than okay. And it will be a fresh, green Spring before you know it. I hope ;-)
